May is Bike Month Events

May is Bike Month 2014There are several “May is Bike Month” events planned for May.  The City and the Yolo Transportation Management Association (TMA) are hosting an energizer station on May 7, from 7-9 a.m., on Jefferson Blvd. just north of Lake Washington Blvd.  Also, May 7th is National Bike to School Day.  The Mayor will be leading a ride to Bridgeway Islands Elementary School beginning at Sunset Vista Park at 7:20 am.  Capitol BikeFest is on May 8 at the west steps of the Capitol Building.

Chris Dougherty, the City’s bicycle/pedestrian coordinator, will lead a group of city employees and interested persons to Capitol BikeFest, leaving City Hall at 11 a.m.  At a recent energizer station at the Tower Bridge staff counted 150 cyclists in a two hour period.  This apparent increase in ridership is likely due to the Fix50 project.  We expect this significant increase in bicycle commuting through May.
